The Set Table Small Gatherings

Henry Miller is not popular with the academic community. I think this is because there is nothing for academics to do with his books. Henry says what Henry means, there really is no need to interpret his meaning. So don't be scared off just because your instructors never mention this book. It's meant to be enjoyed outside the confines of institutions such as college anyway. Henry's point of view is the man in the street. Sometimes(most of the time) he is dealing with very basic issues like food(mostly where the next meals coming from) and sex which he likes to have often. Henry is a man perhaps limited to a few appetites but that is why he is fun to hang out with. He enthuses you with his own enthusiasms. He can be funny, depressing, and surprisingly poetic in his visions which may have been brought on by hunger or drink or just desperation to have a vision. I think the same audience that likes Kerouac will like Miller. Kerouac is also dismissed by the academy and the higher circles of learning but who cares. Both tell pretty straightforward tales about themselves trying to live the way they want. They should be read for no other reason than for the pure enjoyment they give. The movie Henry Miller(Henry and June) I think is a great character but not the Henry I know. The Henry that is narrating Tropic of Cancer is desperate and spilling over with words that are sometimes heartbreakingly honest. The movie Henry is more like a loveable clown which Henry did become later in life. Other books by Henry Miller are also very enjoyable. My favorites: The Colossus of Maroussi(about a visit to Greece), The Air-Conditioned Nightmare(travels in U.S.) and Big Sur and the Oranges of Hieronymos Bosch(about his life in that N. California idyllic spot). Read and enjoy. Screw the academy.

  1. there's a slight nook for my bedroom furniture set (vanity/headboard/bed), am considering finding a floor flutter screen for some privacy/separation. Already have a huge 3-seater futon, but need to purchase all other furniture. Any space-saving suggestions or pieces I should look for that could function for everyday and entertaining (i don't do huge gatherings, but usually several friends). hope this makes sense, and any suggestions would be appreciated!

  3. I'm considering homeschooling my goddaughter (at her request). I've read tons of articles & statistics listing the pros & cons, and have found organizations, classes, & gatherings, to make sure she gets plenty of social interaction with other kids. My only concern is that we are moving to a small home. I need good ideas on how to give her the best "classroom" experience in a limited space. Thanks in advance!

  4. Hi there, I was just hoping I could get a few recommendations on the best videorecorder. I have checked and shifted through what feels like a thousand sites comparing them and I haven’t really gotten anywhere. I am an anthropology student and for my course work we have conduct interviews with people that are helpful to our research. She has challenged us to archive our family and the stories we share at gatherings or just in conversation. So I want a recorder that is small and durable enough for me to carry everywhere, you never know when a good story will come up. Of course a good mic, memory, and picture quality would be nice. I am not very well versed in specifics in the technology. I was just hoping to find someone that has USED a camera they liked. I am college student on a college student budget and I don’t have the funds to waste on a gamble. I would appreciate any information or recommendations you have. THANKS
